According to the Investor, contractors are slow to deploy drainage items, unloading, and finishing loading the National Highway 80 intersection (8,000 m3). The reason is that the monitoring of weak soil treatment is not as expected, some sections of the line are still subsiding, so they are not eligible for unloading.

The investor is directing the contractor to accelerate the implementation of sewer construction, when eligible for unloading, quickly unloading, mobilizing K98 construction equipment quickly to ensure the overall progress; At the same time, gather materials in advance to prepare for the construction of asphalt concrete.

The 319th Corporation also achieved plans in unloading, mobilizing equipment and implementing the construction of class K98.

In Package XL-02, Truong Son Construction Corporation has made efforts to achieve the plan, completing the bridges to the end of the railing ledge, casting D1500 sewer pipes, basically completing 3 collection road box culverts.

Particularly, Package XL-03, Deo Ca Group Joint Stock Company, Tan Nam Construction Joint Stock Company and 36 Corporation are constructing drainage items, some sections of the line are not eligible for unloading.

According to the Investor, the workload in the period of June – July 2023 for contractors is very large. The construction in the coming period will face many difficulties, even difficulties due to the peak rainy season in the area. Therefore, the Investor requires contractors to quickly mobilize enough machinery for construction, mobilize finance in time to compensate for progress.
